IPL not to blame for KP injury, says ECB

An ECB spokesman described the claims as ‘blatantly untrue’ and Pietersen had never been ordered to refrain from running during his stint with Bangalore.

“Pietersen reported to Loughborough before he flew out to South Africa and was passed fit to join up with Bangalore,” the spokesman said.

“ECB medical staff sent Bangalore’s fitness programme and at no stage did Kevin Pietersen do anything to contradict that and at no stage was he told not to go running,” he added. “Kevin is the most diligent and responsible of trainers and prides himself on his physical fitness and preparation.”
